Shoeless Jeff and Scott Free rap about saving money, in the spirit of Ben Franklin
Track on Smart Songs' upcoming album, Trip to Wall Street

Lyrics - Shoeless Jeff and Scott Free


Keeping track of our money
Helps us lead successful lives
No one knew this better than Ben Franklin
Who wrote The Way to Wealth


It's the Way to Wealth, Wealth, Wealth, Wealth
It's the Way to—Way to Wealth, Way to Wealth
Way to find prosperity
It's the Way to Wealth, Wealth, Wealth, Wealth
It's the Way to—way to gain more money, not spend money recklessly

Benjamin Franklin was a wealthy man
He said that you can be too if you follow the plan
It's called the Way to Wealth, it's no selfish plan
Just time-tested tips to help avoid a jam

We try hard to build up our savings
But some of our money must be used to pay things
Expenses, bills, taxes soar
But to pass by your opportunities costs more

Loungin' round on the couch doing nothing
How much did you get done? Practically nothing
Don't be like the key that becomes rusty
You won't open any doors if you're too lazy

Ben Franklin said: "Early to bed and early to rise
Makes a person healthy, wealthy, and wise"
You can be more productive, it's no surprise
Listen close to these tips, we strongly advise


Be aware where your money is, where does it go?
Don't let others handle it, if you don't know
All your records yourself, pay attention to detail
A war was lost 'cause a horseshoe had a loose nail

Identify what's most important to you
Maybe clothes, food, and your rent money too
Spend on what you need and save the rest
You're heading down the path to being prosperous

So you really wanna save money 'cause it's a good deal?
If it's something you don't need, what is the big deal?
Little leaks here and there sink a vast ship
Don't lend money out if you expect to get it back quick

Be careful that you don't fall into the trap
By convincing yourself: "Hey, I can afford that!"
When really, in fact, you should be giving it back
Because repeatedly this leads to the money you lack


Well if you're knee-deep in debt
You're gonna sweat and stress
So don't get into more debt, that's a mess
Fallin' behind on your credit card? Pay in cash
Debt has a tendency to pile up fast

Let's say that you've paid all your debt away
Make sure that you save for a rainy day
Even if the skies look clear and things are going well
What's in our future? There's no way to tell

Money is important but it's not the only thing in life
Stay humble, help others, always do what's right
The advise from the wise, learn from and borrow
Start the Way to Wealth now
And have a better tomorrow

And remember, we're human, nobody's perfect
But practice these tips, 'cause it's well worth it
And pass them on to anyone else who will listen
Keep alive Ben Franklin's Way to Wealth vision
